Frontiers of Solitude is a collaboration between artists and arts organizations in three European countries: Školská 28 (Czech Republic), Skaftfell (Iceland) and Atelier Nord (Norway). The project encompasses a wide range of activities, including residencies and workshops in each participating country, ending with an exhibition and symposium in Prague in early 2016. Frontiers of Solitude is funded through the EEA grants for Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Arts.
By observing selected regions in The Czech Republic, Iceland and Norway the project aims to examine how industrial activities transform the landscape, often with far reaching ecological and social consequences. This perspective is interdisciplinary, with a particular emphasis on media art based approaches. Frontiers of Solitude aims to engage with a wide range of practices and disciplines including contemporary art theory, ecology and environmental science.
